Photo of the Day November 8, 2011: Movie Theater Cookie by FattyCakesNY

The one that woke me up today was the “Movie Theater” cookie.  The concept is around making a cookie with the things you’d find on a movie theater floor.  Mind you, FattyCakesNY does not source their ingredients from movie theater dumpsters.  The idea is that movie snacks are such a guilty pleasure, and we stuff them into our cookieholes all at once anyway, usually before the actual movie even starts.  This particular cookie starts out as a classic chocolate chip, to which the bakers add popcorn and bits of Swedish Fish.  The popcorn adds a crunchy texture and a touch of savory, while the fish contribute gooeyness and even more sweetness.

FattyCakesNY’s repertoire of cookies really is ridiculous, as they say themselves.  Highlights include:

  1. Old Faithful: A butter cookie filled with bourbon pecan pie filling

  2. The Jules: A butter cookie filled with cherry jam

  3. Sticky Fingers: A peanut butter cookie packed with homemade peanut brittle, caramel, and buttered popcorn

  4. The Big Daddy: Homemade bacon brittle with chocolate chips in a peanut butter cookie

Are you still here? Or have you passed out from the most delightful case of sugar shock just from reading the descriptions?

FattyCakesNY takes orders in person, rather than impersonally online, via email to:  They can customize your order too (i.e. adding your favorite movie theater snack to our Movie Theater cookies).  Most varieties are available gluten-free.

You can find FattyCakesNY next at the Handmade Cavalcade on December 3, 2011!
